Regine Haschka Helmer started her career in the early 90's, at I-D Media AG, one of the fastest growing digital consulting agency in Europe as the COO. She was the youngest woman in the managing board of a German public listed company. During this time she managed the company´s IPO and was responsible for setup and managing international subsidiaries in London and Vienna.

Regine also developed successful digital strategies and business models but also outstanding digital projects for corporates of a wide range of industries. for which she also won important awards like New York Festival, Cannes Lions, Art Directors Club etc.

In 2010 she founded Seedlab GmbH in Berlin, focusing on consulting large companies in digital transformation processes and digital business development. With Seedlab she establishes cooperation to potential startups enabling new business models. With her team she builds innovation departments or incubators and supports companies in their digital transformation process. She is also business angel investor of various startup companies and supporting them as an adviser. Regine is lecturer at the HWZ (Economic University) in Zurich, Keynote speaker and author.

Always having been fascinated by new innovative technologies and the potential of new business models, she got in touch with IOTA in 2016 to collaborate. Since then she has actively been supporting the project in the development of use cases and Proof of Concepts with corporates, to demonstrate and explore the potential of IOTA for a wide range of industries. She is now joining the IOTA Foundation officially and will be spending even more time on assisting in growing the ecosystem from a business development point of view.

On being a part of IOTA

After internet of people, internet of things will connect everything and will be the next challenge for innovators. There are requirements which don´t have a solution yet. I believe that decentralized technologies provide a lot of benefits for new requirements. IOTA is an amazing approach with a lot of benefits to enable new business models and solutions. I am very proud to become a member of the IOTA foundation to support the IOTA team to establish IOTA as the new standard technology for IOT and decentralized solutions.

We are very happy to have Regine on board the IOTA Foundation and know based on her previous work on behalf of IOTA that she will play a key role in adoption of the technology and vision in the business landscape. Everyone give her a warm welcome!
